. city college of san francisco has 9 campuses in the city and serves approximately 100,000 students each year. the state has reduced funding to ccsf by core academic courses, provide work force training, provide an education that prepares students for 4 year universities, keep city college libraries and student support services open, keep technology and instructional support up to date, and offset state budget cuts. i'm here with alyssa messer, an english teacher at city college of san francisco. she's the ppt of aft2121, the faculty union, and a proponent of proposition a. also joining us is starchild, a local activist with the libertarian party of san francisco and a former candidate for the san francisco school board. he's an opponent of the measure. thank you both for taking the time to be with us today. >> thank you. >> alyssa, i'd like to give you the opportunity it share the thoughts of your position. >> so proposition a is a temporary 8-year, $79 parcel tax on properties in san francisco. and that money would go directly to supporting city college of san francisco. city colleg
work that happens in the city and also to honor the individuals who are responsible for some of that success. congratulations to all of our honorees. we're very grateful for your work. let's give a hand for them. [applause] the good government awards also support spur's good government work. it is a central part of our mission. our agenda is admittedly ambitious. we analyze every local measure on the san francisco ballot, which until recently was a pretty formidable task. we participate in most of the major issues of city government from pension and payroll tax reform to some of the most important discussions on how we fund a lot of our public services, whether that finding different revenue streams for our parks, are trying to find new ways to fund public transportation in the city. we're very happy to be working with mayor lee and the board to address a lot of these issues. this will clearly be a busy year for us. another component of our work is connecting the city's robuspro o assistance with our many business partners. this is a core part of mfac original purpose in san
. this project needs to be resolved. otherwise, the benefit to the city and a personal view and not approving this project is you probably have a building that sits vacant for many more years. if the person who has the building now can't afford to invest the money and create two units they won't find -- unless someone is independently wealthy. would rather have this family or have a vacant? we are not in a situation where we can do this. unfortunately that is the case here. >> commissioners, motion on the floor as to approve the project as proposed by the project sponsor. on that motion. (voting) motion passes, 5-2, commissioners moore and wu voting against. >> general public comment? i would like to close the meeting in memory of a gentleman named frank -- property owner at fisherman's wharf, our neighbor next door for the wax museum for three generations. his father and my grandfather spent lunches together, father spent a lot of time with frankie. with that the meeting is adjourned. here to introduce the mayor of san francisco, forecast sf sponsor and regional vice president health syste
this city an even better place to start and grow a new business, and second, he's been a toothless support of electric vehicles to improve san francisco's environment and the global environment as a whole so please welcome mayor ed lee. >> michael, matt, congratulations to scoot, yes. scoot and san francisco, well, let me first of all put this in some little perspective that i know, i know that we just announced last week, eb week in san francisco to the delight of so many people who want to just have modes of transportation, multiple modes of transportation in a city that are also environmentally friendly and to contribute that reducing our fossil fuels, we are in san francisco world citizens after all and i know it's exciting for ed risken, our mta manager, he and i were excited to talk about different modes of transportation as we create all these exciting events to come to san francisco. i know it's exciting for board president david chiu, we tried to put pods for car sharing in neighborhoods on public streets and began in russian hill on his district, he's a vibrant, vibrant avid supp
. we welcome the new archbishop to the city and county of san francisco. i believe that he officially takes office on thursday of this week. you know, san francisco has always been a very welcoming place and it is in that spirit that we extend an invitation to the archbishop to work with every member of the catholic community in the city and county of san francisco, including many of us who have been raised catholic and are practicing catholic, but who happen to be lgbt. it is my hope that as he takes over his very important position in the city and county of san francisco that he will be someone who will embrace the entirety of the catholic community, and that means many in the lgbt community. and i think that it's really about the emphasis and the hope is that we can focus on things where there is common ground. i appreciate and respect the work that he has done on behalf of the poor, on behalf of many immigrants including undocumented people. and it is my hope that in that same spirit that we can work on ways in which we can find some common ground instead of some of the divisive s
for employees who spend less for their employees health care than what the city believes is adequate? >> yes. i think it's important that we continue in this direction. i was one of those persons who grew up -- i mean my grandmother raised me and my brothers and she worked as a maid and couldn't afford health care. and luckily we had medicare and we were able to go to the doctor and the dentist. i still have my same dentist who has been my dentist since i actually had teeth. i just think it's great that kids and people who don't have access to health care have access to health care. we need to look at ways to move into that direction and i think san francisco has definitely led the way for our president to move forward with obamacare and i'm excited about that and i think we can find more innovative ways to fund this. part of that is taking the fees from the employers who have those fees who aren't using it for reimbursement and other costs that we take those fees and use them for appropriate purposes. >> mr. resignato. >> thank you chris for the health question, i
bay and east bay would not share. would you support san francisco using city taxpayer dollars to pay mtc for the cost of providing free muni service to young people in san francisco? in other words, if mtc isn't willing to do it on its own, should the city be paying more money into mtc to get the service out of mtc? >> as a last resort. that would be certainly the last way of funding it that i would look at. there is a continuity problem between the different transportation agencies that make it a little bit unworkable. at this present time i think one of the ways to deal with the issue is to see if the nuts and bolts of it can be tweaked a little bit to make it into a workable solution. maybe that may take a little bit more time, but i don't think as a sort of knee-jerk reaction we need to put the burden on taxpayers. with that being said it's vitally important for people to get around and especially those who can't afford and if you are a young person, i think that is a very important consideration as well. again, the focus should be on tweaking the nuts and bolts of continuity i
go; at some point it should be based on the policies of the cities themselves. some points are based where growth wants to go based on economics. all of those are being considered; it is not a clear model per se, but all of those things are considered by the region at any given time. where companies want to be, all those things that economies you as well as our own policies to entice growth. >> that implies to me this kind of hybrid, taking into account what we think will happen but also some direction because i know is that the projections were high in the santa clara county which actually is more auto centric, more spread out; it seems that would be counter intuitive considering senate bill 375. >> when you dig down to santa clara in general, oakland, san francisco san jose are taking on a substantial part of the growth. the region came up with a few scenarios and one is that they were all kind of anti-sprawl; some more center focus in others. most of the growth in santa clara will happen in san jose. also in the process we have been coordinating with the cities of oakland and sa
important -- it's tough to narrow it down like that. i really feel that city hall and residents and students and small businesses just need to have a much less adversairal relationship and i know that is very generalized. i am interested in making things easier for homeowners and students and visitors and one of the things coming up a lot in this campaign is public financing and i have taken a stand from the very beginning they would not accept 1 dollar in public financing money. not that i oppose it per se but these are hundreds and thousands of dollars and we are losing money and candidates are spending it on consultants in walnut creek or in san jose and one way is to keep money here in san francisco by changing the system. >> mr. crawlly same question. what in your opinion is the single most policy issue in san francisco and if elected what would you do to address it? >> well, there are several and i believe that if i am elected supervisor the first thing i will deal with is public safety. as you know there are 344 police officers that are retiring by next november. in th
what we see now is a bit of an abuse in terms of the number of vendors that the city has leased space to in our parks. and parks and recreation is for parks and recreation and not necessarily should be a place where we are leasing space to more vendors than we particularly need in specific areas. there is a place for vendors, for food vendors for various vendors in certain areas of the parks, but i think we are focusing way too much time on trying to figure out how we generate revenue for the city more so than we are trying to figure out how to make sure that those uses are good uses for the people who use the parks . >> julian davis here. you know, i think we're seeing somewhat of a crisis in our parks and recreation department. i found that the department is severely mismanaged. we have synthetic fields going we have privatization and commercialization of our park spaces. we have rec directors being fired and park patrol officers being hired. we have onerous fees for access to community space, pricing community events out of our park spaces. the question is about whether particular
into the city, can you go church and come out and go to westportal and get a ticket. i think that is morally wrong and gouging and gouging and eventually it's just bad pr and for the generating 2.5 million dollars on this budget it's senseless and it's just more government putting the throats -- putting the boots on the throat of the average day citizen. >> all right. thank you sir. mr. yee. >> so let's face it. let's not make our parking meters the atm for the city. i mean we really need to support the notion that we don't want meters to operate on sunday, especially in our district, district seven. the business corridors need access to customers and when you charge on sundays and parking meters the same people shopping and at restaurants they're going to go somewhere else. they're going to go to stonestown and the malls and if you believe in the small businesses in the community then we need to support the notion that we're not going to allow for parking meters to operate on sunday. >> okay. thank you mr. yee. mr. bye. >> i completely oppose sunday and late night meters and our dist
: resolution authorizing lease of 255,420 rentable square feet at bayshore boulevard, daly city, california from prolog *f sl.p. for a 20-year term plus two five-year extensions at rent of $2,449,642 with annual increases for san francisco municipal transportation agency's towed car operations and other services. >> for this we have ed with the mta and sinaly. >> good afternoon, ed riskos, transportation director. i want to thank you for shuffling the agenda to accommodate this item, which is of great importance to the agency, which is why i wanted to be here so you could hear from my firsthand about it. what is before you is a resolution that would approve a leaswe have been seeing quite sometime that would solve a number of challenges we are currently facing. therefore it is very important to the agency. we have a wide array of assets in the mta across the city that we use to operator all the modes of transit that we operator, or transportation that we're responsible for, the lion's share which of course is muni. because of the diversity and age and condition of the assets, the real estat
the reagan and bush eras. and we could use that revenue to fund our public schools and restore jtor city college. >> thank you, miss selby. >> two of the things that are being done this november and i would love for to you vote for both of them, 30 and 38. those are two measures that would raise money for education and money in education is in dire straits. it's okay to vote for both. i also do support gross receipts. and i'm a small business person, and i wanted to let you all know that i have done sort of looked what i pay now $9,000. i have seven employees and i pay $9,000 a year and i will pay $750. so for small businesses the gross receipts actually does help and does not put the burden on the little guy and it is progressive and so it does become progressively as you make more money. many one concern with small businesses there are businesses out there that have a lot of gross receipts, but they have no profit. and this is something that the only thing that concerns about those two things. finally i would be okay with reinstating the vehicle license fee at the levels it was befor
and finding another site, is they were able to move more quickly than the city and mta were able to move. we did purchase a site recently for our sustainable street shots. again, did a lease with an option to buy. we were able to convince prologis to have right of first negotiation. they didn't want to sell. they are a real estate investment trust, they just purchased this property last summer so need to gone rate dividends for shareholders. this enables sfmta the time to get our money together to purchase. we would like to purchase before 20 years, no doubt about it. >> again, i appreciate the information and i appreciate the work you've put into . this my question was not what other properties you have looked at but if we have known since 2004 there was a need to move somewhere else, if have known two years, got notice from the port for two years, that's a long time, how it is if we knew we had this need, why is it that someone like that would be able to move in quicker than we? is there something about the way in which the real estate department at the mta approaches its deals that makes
huge priority for us. trying to find -- trying to work with city agencies, with community-based organizations, to make sure that young people, especially, have opportunities to make choices in their lives. and so that is why we have been focused very much on job-training and wrap-around services in that respect also. i think there are older adults and other folks who also could use additional employment. so i think jobs is a big issue for me. >> miss johnson? >> i agree that it's difficult to pick just one issue. but i think a lot of our policy issues that we're having, that you have in front of us come from a lack of accountable. where is your money being spent? how is it being spent? there is a lot of mismanagement. and there is a lot of money that goes places we don't know where it's going. and you can see it running through all of this discussion of all of the polices. are our elected officials making policy decisions that are sustainable? that promote equity? or are they for-sale to the highest bidder? these are the things that we need to address, otherwise you
redevelopment plan and other true wind-down activities honoring our commitment throughout the city whether in the third street bayview corridor, like a bankruptcy, wind down pay off the debt so the tax increment in the series is available for distribution to the taxing entities, city, county, bart, schools. free up the taxes generated for distribution to the other entities. in the case of san francisco we do have a lot at stake. a number of these area plans which the commission approved the board approved as i indicated, made or approved, hunters point, mission bay, trans bay, another obligations that need to be implemented, they are in many cases 30 year plants. mission bay, hald done. trans way, just getting started, going for the terminal, housing production, infrastructure needed along folsom, is getting started, 700 acres still left to be done over the course of 20-30 years. what 1483 did, because it is a separate legal entity, apart from the city and county of san francisco, acknowledged that the surviving obligations and successor agencies in fact are not part of the city and

[applause] >> they have extra photographers that travel with them. let's hear it one more time for jocelyn and her family. thank you very much. [applause] >> i graduated from the university of california berkeley with a degree in civil engineering. i started with the department of public works in 1984. in 2003, i was asked to come to san francisco public utilities commission to take the meat on the program. i'm responsible for all the large capital projects for water, waste water, and power. it's about $12 billion of capital projects. we have a lot of projects. our water system improvement program, 80 products that span seven counties. we have a staff of about 400 city employees and about 500 consultants. puc is really embracing technology. we wanted to make sure we really had a system that would elevate all issues so we could address them in a timely manner. as you know, time is money. we have a construction management information system. it is a great tool to help us add
in an area that could be congested. a good project for the city, the impact for us and big benefit for us and looking forward to getting back to mission street at the end of the month. we do have upcoming in a couple of weeks our next and last really big special event we can of the year. weekend of october 6-7, an incredible list of events all coincide on that week. the next round of the americas cup world series, coincides with fleet week in the same area, also the harley -- bluegrass festival, castro st. parade, the cruise ship unloading and loading on that saturday. we have the grand opening of the -- in union square. we have football game, 49ers against the bills. a white likely be giants will be in town with a playoff. an incredible amount. >> [ off mic ] >> absolutely. there's a map that shows some of the special event and you can see there is a significant concentration in the northeast quadrant of the city. we will be once again testing some of the people-planned concerts for the america's plan, also supporting the fleet events. also converting the embarcadero, opera
graffiti, how graffiti affects property owners, it affects the city. and things we've done, we've worked with the art commission. i think one of the funest things i was involved in was at that time deputy director nuru of dpw and i worked with the arts commission on what color the street furniture and lamp poles in san francisco should be and standardize that nice green color we have now and made it easier to paint out graffiti and keep a standard. so, dpw didn't have to carry around 10 different colors of paint with them to paint out graffiti. so, going forward what i'd really like to see is just really more education, more education, education with kids, with property owners around their responsibilities, with folks that get caught doing vandalism and grab feet and also education with the arts -- on avenues for people to express their creativity and that kind of thing. so. >> thank you, mr. giusti. i've seen you at many events. i appreciate your work and passion and for serving since its inception. glad that you're still here. just a quick question. do you happen to be a property owner
. perhaps that is something that can be worked out between the oakland a's and the city of oakland. a personal note, despite the fact that i have rather bright pink clothing, i am happy to announce that my son and daughter-in-law are expecting a boy in march; my granddaughter will have a little brother. finally more importantly, i did meet with project sponsor a couple of weeks ago in regards to 2830 toledo, i did have a chance to look at the plans and i'm happy to work with the dr requester and project sponsor to forge a compromise that will make it something that the commission can evaluate and find compromise. this will come back in november. i think there's a lot of potential there. >> congratulations. another line of antoninis in san francisco. commissioner woo. >> i want to announce that this saturday is affordable housing day in san francisco. there will be a number of tours. affordable, seniors, partnership between aia and the number of affordable housing developers.anyone that wants to stop by feel free. >> we can move onto directors reports. directors announceme
, they would not have been in that position. unfortunately, the way city governments work, if the money is not there and you can't close with very short time frame of due diligence, it is not going to happen. even as you get down the peninsula there are multiple users who would jump at the opportunity to find, one, a building of this size. 250,000 square feet building. two, a building that size on two acres. most will sit on eight acres. so the extra land * ten is driving some of the values up. the transaction james is talking about with dbi was formerly amb building on spruce. they moved into a 177,000 foot portion of an industrial building the sfo -- you know, san francisco's airport operation had leased prior to. their rent is significant more than the rent on this deal is. so the value in the market is there. that deal was negotiated three, four years ago. that lack of supply is what drives value. that is anything in the world. whether it is a commodity, food, precious gems, whatever it is. that is what is driving the value. i understand the concept of let's take more time to find a
to determine the fate of suspended sheriff ross mirkarimi. prosecutors are depart at city hall. cher have i there to let us know what's at stake, good afternoon. >> reporter: good afternoon, the protesters here are actually the supporters, they showed up about a half hour ago. they've been doing chants on and off. they're here on the front steps of city hall. one person told us she was a person of domestic violence, she didn't feel it was considered abuse. now the board of supervisors meets at 2:00 this afternoon. and the last time mirkarimi and his wife lopez came here was back in august when the ethics commission came out with its recommendation that mirkarimi may be ousted from office. lopez has been living with venezuela for the past few months now. in march, the mayor suspended him without pay after he pled guilty to false imprisonment charge. all stemmed from a new year's eve argument with lopez who suffered a bruised arm. now antidepiction advocates says that mirkarimi should not be allowed to oversea the regist, it's simply a conflict of interest. supporters say this process has bee
problems of people asking for more and more people and creating a city where there is very wealthy and very poor people. so i would like to give a quick shout out in that direction to supervisor olague, who is having the san francisco housing authority try to film its meetings. it doesn't even meet at city hall and this is the kind of inequity i'm talking about. we need accountability. so i appreciate that and we need that. thank you. >> thank you, mr. everett. >> i'm the type the progressive who grieves believes that we're only as wealthy as the least among us. so means that in san francisco we can only go as far as the african-american young men and women who have been economically disadvantaged for generations here in the city. we need to provide jobs. with when we talk about green jobs of future and sustainable produce, we need to talk about how to feed the single mothers in those communities. we need comprehensive reforms to bring those disadvantaged communitis with us. we cannot provide those folks with jobs unless we reform our drug policies in san francisco, which essentially d
and reflected not only what we needed to see as a city agency and address the needs and concerns outlined by the advocates. mr. campbell's monthly updates to this body were instrumental in letting us know what was happening and we especially appreciate the fact that he always took the feedback into consideration and we wouldn't be here without his ability to do that. mr. campbell's commitment to clean power sf ensured a viable program that met all of the requirements set forth by the city, and so the resolution reads that be it resolve that the san francisco local agency commission hereby congratulates mike campbell and his years of service to the people of san francisco and exprelseses its deepest gratitude for dedication and knowledgeable and forward thinking way to create a program that moves the city and county san francisco environmental goals forward. mr. campbell it is our honor to again acknowledge your work and we thank you and we know that there is hope for the california public utilities commission because you will be starting there very shortly and that is a very good thing

approval as the city attorney has advised us should go before the board. on this particular item i don't think there is anything that significant. it is a matter that the department has to be careful. i don't think there is a very agregious error in what has taken place. as you can see, we are recommending approval of this legislation with the correct amounts to be modified. but you're correct in your observation. this should not happen. >> i haven't seen too many -- to often of a model where there are certain stages expected in terms of a contract renewed over and over, like this one has. this is pretty -- >> are you referring to the -- let me -- i know we are talking about next week as well but those are burning questions. >> supervisor avalos, are you referring to the fact that when the contract was first approved on a competitive basis the initial amount was about 600,000. now we are up significantly to $60 million. in this case we agree with the method the department used. it was always stated to the board of supervisors that after the competitive process they would adopt a plan,

the brokers but i would rather hear from the city and county in terms of our best interest. that is kind of what i'm looking for over the next week. i'm curious. maybe this is a separate issue because we are not raising tow fees and lease, i'm assuming auto return will stay the same. what we are looking at there, is there consideration for increasing tow? i'm curious actually as to what our tow dollars bring to operating costs for muni. if we have the highest tow cost in the country, is that subsidizing any of our services at all? we get ton ofs of complaints about the cost of towing versus new york city, et cetera, et cetera. i have always understood it that that subsidizes some of our front-line services like muni. maybe i'm wrong about that. but if we are spending this amount on real estate, i just want to get a sense of that cost benefit analysis. >> thank you, supervisor kim. i am supportive of the continuance one week. i thank all the folks here today. not an easy one. thank you to the brokers, prologis and mta staff for being here and answering a lot of tough questions. i think a

-brick city of albi in the south of france. henri grew up in a world of chateaus and privilege in a family living on the fruits of its noble past. but a france governed by the middle class was losing its taste for nobility. like many aristocrats, his father alphonse retreated into rural pastimes-- riding and hunting. an eccentric, he looked wistfully back to the family's glorious past. alphonse had married his first cousin adele, a common practice in a class anxious to preserve the purity of its bloodlines. but the results of inbreeding for henri were uncommonly cruel. his legs were short and weak. he broke each of them in early adolescence and stopped growing when he was 14. he was just under five feet tall. his head, hands and torso continued to develop. but his stunted legs made walking painful for the rest of his life. denied the aristocratic pleasures of riding and hunting, henri turned to sketching and painting rural scenes. he had a flair for it and in 1882, at the age of 18, he moved to paris to study painting. it was a move that would change the direction of his art and his life.
